So last year I started doing a word of the year instead of the traditional New Year's Resolutions and it went pretty well. I few times I stumbled along the way, but I think I did a much better job of living for today and I am learning see each day as a fresh start. This has really helped with me being a stay at home momma.
Some days are just hard. Nora and I can butt heads some days, we can both be just so stubborn. But luckily I have an amazing Hubby who will let me leave, take a break, and come back a refreshed momma. And learning that just because yesterday was bad, doesn't mean today has to be bad as well.
As I've been trying to find a word that I want to be my focus for 2015, life has been a little bumpy. This pregnancy is really starting to wear on me, I'm always achy, I've been sick, and have been trying to figure out what the next step is for our family. Well needless to say I have been feeling like God is telling me to EMBRACE my life RIGHT NOW.
Embrace my faith.
Embrace my hubby.
Embrace my role as a momma.
Embrace chances to go outside my comfort zone (And is is a BIG one for me!)
Embrace a simple life.
Embrace the mess that comes from life.
In short embrace life and all that goes with it.
2015 is a year I need to work on embracing life and start taking some chances. Joining new groups, meeting new people, and remember that even though some day it feels like I'm just a momma, to remember that I am also a wife, daughter, sister, quilter, runner, friend, and so much more!
